So, this has been bugging my since my youth. When looking at a map of The Earth.
In the Southern Hemisphere, both Africa and South America are tall and slim, they get thinner towards the pole. Then there's Australia, and a huge amount of scattered smaller islands.
The Northern Hemisphere appears to have a huge amount of additional land-mass. Eurasia and North America are both tall and wide, they get thinner to the East and West.
What's the current understanding of this? There definitely seems to be a north-south divide in how the land is distributed.
